Notre meute (Our Pack) is an ethnographic fiction evoking the music and manners of an invented population, whose origins are geographically and temporally unknown. Apparently singing, other times talking, sometimes wailing, other times stammering, “our pack” will (un) fairly be perceived in the ambiguous spectrum that ranges from the “primitive” to the “civilized,” from the “savage” to the “sophisticated.”
